Play! will take place from 18th to 22nd October in Istanbul, Turkey.
The BT Music and Performing Arts School will create a musical theater for children (ages 5-11) and their parents, based on very successful books about composers’ lives called ‘Classical Music Tales’. It will bring parents and children together to share and find new interest in music.
The young musicians will perform two musical theatres around the Turkish youth music competition and one final concert performed by two EMCY prize winners and winners of the Turkish competition.
The EMCY prize winners are: Weng Qingzhu, violin, winner of the International Competition for Violin, Kloster Schöntal and Marina Beschastnykh, violin, winner of Mravinsky International Competition for Youth.
The activity is part of GIVE MUSIC A FUTURE project.
GIVE MUSIC A FUTURE is a cooperation project co-funded by the culture program Creative Europe of the European Union. It counts 8 partners of 7 different countries: United Kingdom, Netherlands, Turkey, Lithuania, Spain, Luxembourg and Germany. GIVE MUSIC A FUTURE wants to promote young European musicians with performances in 7 countries, providing them with the essential skills to engage with different audiences all over Europe. They will leave the concert halls and take the music to places where you and I meet. GIVE MUSIC A FUTURE will turn youth music competitions into an interactive experience of art.
